No guests this week, just us but we’ve got a quick and dirty podcast with news of TiVo’s latest DVR plus some freshly updated iPad apps from Netflix and DirecTV. The Xbox 360 has its own new apps to deliver as well, while Sky is still creeping towards a different kind of pay-TV service with its upcoming Now TV. Home automation heads will be interested in the Motorola Connected Home Gateway that appears to be right around the corner, and we’ve also got a quick look at the latest legal developments for Aereo. Finally, we’ll check in with the latest TV and Blu-ray releases this week — press play and see if we can get Ben caught up on Game of Thrones in time for the season premiere.
